Ingress protection ratings is the rank of protection offered by a casing, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Technics EAH AZ60's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
In comparison to the Technics EAH AZ60, Skullcandy Indy Fuel have a rating of IP55 meaning that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety and that of liquids is that, Skullcandy Indy Fuel has a higher liquid rating than Technics EAH AZ60
Technics EAH AZ60 have a weight of 14g . We prefer a lower weight better because lighter devices are easier to transport.
The Skullcandy Indy Fuel, at 57g are heavier than the Technics EAH AZ60 by of 43g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no wires linking any part of the device together, Technics EAH AZ60 are true wireless for this matter since they have no wires. This is an important distinction since wireless earbuds have wires linking the two earbuds .
Skullcandy Indy Fuel also is true wireless since it doesn't have wires linking the 2 earbuds together.
The Skullcandy Indy Fuel come with wingtips, these are commonly used for earbuds for workouts and are usually an optional add-on to the separate silicone ear tip for a more secure fit.
Technics EAH AZ60 are resistant to sweat
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use during long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
The Skullcandy Indy Fuel are both dustproof and water-resistant.
Technics EAH AZ60 have stereo speakers, what this means is that Technics EAH AZ60's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Skullcandy Indy Fuel and Technics EAH AZ60 have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced technology to actively counter noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (inverted noise) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Technics EAH AZ60 have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
Technics EAH AZ60 stay well in place, creating a sound covering that tones down background sounds well as preventing the earbuds sound from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that both tone down ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have a unit size of 8mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, its size determines the sound produced by the device.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 2mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device produces low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio component produces high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Skullcandy Indy Fuel's measurement is 105dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Technics EAH AZ60's battery life is 7.5 hours, a device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chanrgings.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's battery life is less than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 4.5 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and the Technics EAH AZ60's case has a charge of 25 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before having to recharge the case itself.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's charging case has a battery life of 27 hours, more than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 2 hours
It takes 2 hours to fully charge the Technics EAH AZ60's battery. It is highly adivsable to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel takes 0.3 hours to fully charge the battery, less than that of Technics EAH AZ60 by 1.7 hours
Skullcandy Indy Fuel, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the device, you just place down on a compatible charging pad.
Technics EAH AZ60 have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights display the charging status of your device and case.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel too have a battery level indicator, these enable you to determine the charging state of your earbuds, if charged fully, or having a low battery.
The Technics EAH AZ60 support USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power in a single cable.
Technics EAH AZ60 have Bluetooth version of 5.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel has a Bluetooth version of 5, older than that of Technics EAH AZ60 . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Technics EAH AZ60 support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Technics EAH AZ60 will work fine with your iPad. If you are planning on using these with Android you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
Technics EAH AZ60 support LDAC, a codec developed by Sony which allows streaming high-resolution audio over Bluetooth connections at up to 990 kbps at 32 bit/96 kHz. It is capable of a very high bitrate of 990kbps, which provides high-resolution audio.
The Technics EAH AZ60 have 8 microphones.
Technics EAH AZ60 use a noise-canceling microphone, these microphones are intended to filter out noise from the earbuds' sound.
Technics EAH AZ60 support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to pass through ambient sound so that they can still be heard even while wearing them
Technics EAH AZ60 support fast charging. Usually, technologies like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge, are used to lower the amount of time it takes to charge a device.
Also the Skullcandy Indy Fuel too support fast charging. It's very similar to regular charging, just that the battery is filling up much faster. Say, with Quick Charge 3.0, the battery can be charged to 50% in just 30 minutes.
Technics EAH AZ60 support multipoint of 2 connections, the multipoint feature allows you connect to more than one Bluetooth device and switch between them. Say, you can seemlessly switch calls from one device to another without having to manually disconnect and reconnect.
